Electric Boiler Steam Quality; Food Grade and More

 

There are several grades of steam , each offering very different levels of contamination risk.  Reimers makes electric boilers to meet many applications of steam quality. Electric Steam Boilers   

Plant steam is the lowest grade of steam and therefore has the highest risk of potential contamination. The levels of contamination arising from using plant steam are determined by the following factors: • The quality of raw water entering the boiler. • The level of chemicals being dosed into the system and adherence to a water treatment management program. • The correct operation of the boiler. • Cross contamination from other processes.

Filtered steam, also known as culinary steam, is plant steam that has passed through a fine stainless steel filter, typically of five microns pore size. The potential risk of contamination from boiler water treatment chemicals and cross contamination still remains when using a culinary filter. The amount of contamination that finds its way past the filter will depend upon the severity of the problem, the nature of the maintenance regime and the velocity of the steam.

Clean steam is the highest grade of steam for food and beverage applications and is typically raised from purified water in a dedicated clean steam generator. Clean steam should be considered for critical processes. See Reimers Electric boiler options Bakery Saturated Steam Boilers

Pure steam is the pharmaceutical industry’s development of clean steam. The quality and purity of pure steam is in excess of that required for the food and beverage industry today.
